Mari Malchien has been an educator for over 20 years, working with a wide array of ages. Making science fun and easy has been a lifetime goal. She decided to combine her love of weird things with her love of books, and created an educational series on unusual things all around them. The focus is on the diversity and creativity of this world, using the scientific principle of compare and contrast. The earlier kids embrace the diversity all around them, the more accepting they may be of human differences as they grow.
